Digestive Disease Center

Colorectal Surgery Program

The Temple Digestive Disease Center brings together experience, technical skill and a multidisciplinary support team to care for patients with gastrointestinal diseases. Our goal is to help patients with colorectal cancers, diverticulitis, ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease, colon polyps, rectal prolapse, colonic inertia and other gastrointestinal conditions get back to their lives as quickly as possible. 

Leaders in Minimally Invasive Colorectal Surgery

Along with traditional techniques, our colorectal surgeons are leaders in minimally invasive laparoscopic and robotic procedures that may result in quicker recovery times, shorter hospital stays and a lower risk of complications.

Our surgical team collaborates closely with other specialists in the Digestive Disease Center to provide our patients with the support they need to manage these often complex conditions.
